First practice

This has made learning Japanese a lot easier for me. It's also a lot more fun learning this way compared to other sites I have tried in the past. Really glad I got recommended this site.

Iphone Alternative

If you have an Iphone then IKana Touch is really useful for practicing the kana and the stroke order.

I love nihongo!

This is such a nice website.........I kept searching for books to learn Japanese ,but I'm lucky I didn't find one......because books can't b as interactive as this site where ppl keep asking doubts and then other ppl keep clearing them......all in all A VERY NICE EXPERIECE to learn this beautiful language.... :)

Easy.. So far

Well. I started learning hiragana few days ago. I don't have the time to study japanese every day, but I just finished the first chapter.. This is really funny and interesting. Will we be thaugt grammar here too, or do we have to learn that elsewhere?

I just put a few time into studying the first five characters of Hiragana. I gotta say, I'm learning pretty fast.

Real Kana

The flashcards on Real Kana are great to start learning and they have different fonts too!
